Wino Wednesday: Matua Pinot Noir


Tonight’s wine is a Pinot Noir from New Zealand winery Matua. This Pinot Noir is mostly made up of Marlborough grapes but it is blended with some central Otago grapes for more depth and body. The wine is elegant yet understated with medium body and refreshing acidity. Bright and fresh on the nose with aromas of floral, cherry, and blackberry. The mouthfeel is soft and luscious with ample tannins. The wine has dominate flavours of red cherry, cassis, blackberry, pomegranate, black pepper, cinnamon, with a smokey earthiness finish. But what does this all mean? It’s an easy drinking red that pairs well with food or medium cheese. Or as I like it, on it’s own. Great bang for your buck at $17.80 (do people still say that?).

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.
